That's what I was initially thinking and Accuride makes a two way slider, but then I'd have to have a flush drawer front and having it lock out be tricky. Instead of solving these issues, I just went basic to get up and running. I really have a missed opportunity using the back side of the galley, so open to any ideas!
We have a second slider and we just left the back open so we could just drag the fridge out the back of the cabinet, no need for a reverse slider.

I actually should have gotten the Dometic model that allows you to open the lid both directions, that would have solved that problem. I'm still brainstorming on an outdoor fold down table or something for that second slider.

Name? Maybe call it “the Van” thats the name of ours but we will share.
When I had just one van it was "the van". Then came "the short van". After that it got progressively more complicated: the white van, the green van, the Previa, the Sprinter, etc. The PM posed a dilemma, as "the ProMaster" has too many syllables and "the white van" was already taken, so it became Vanna White. First time I ever gave a vehicle a proper name, although I believe someone else beat me to it.

I also have the red tractor, the yellow tractor, the orange tractor, and more.

Don't get me started on motorcycles.

I have a gray van, blue tractor and yellow lawnmower.
I'm good.
Had a green motorcycle a while back.
Scratched that itch and got rid of it before I hurt myself.
Never been a car guy, or much of a vehicle/toy collection kinda guy.
Tools? That's a different story. I may have a bit of a problem. But I do use them. So it's justified, right?

This looks great and you‘ve done some things very similar to how we are building. I’ve got some questions if you have time.

Which foam did you use to back your fabric?
I was looking at Perfect Fit, good experience with them?
Did you use something like 3M77 or a different glue?
Where did you get your coin flooring and how did you glue it to the back cabinets?

Finally, I see at least one familiar sticker. How much time do spend in McCall, ID?

Be aware 3M 77 is for temporary or removable situations. Permanent is 3M 90

We used the 1/8" foam and glued down using the DAP spray-able glue (Amazon.com: Dap Weldwood Contact Adhesive - Landau Top and Trim HHR Solvent Type Spray Grade 1 Gallon: Home Improvement) and a cheap sprayer (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000MQ9BU2). I highly recommend that setup and got the fabric, foam and glue from Perfect Fit and everything went smooth for us.

I got the coin flooring here: G-Floor Small Coin Garage Floor Mats with Enhanced Traction I mostly used 3M 90 to glue it to the cabinet, but it hasn't working perfectly. This summer it was really wanting to lift on the face and I've slowly been trying to find solutions to keep it glued down tight. Hopefully I can figure that out this year.

We typically find ourselves up in McCall at least once a summer for one reason or another. We're from Boise originally, but up in Seattle now. There's always a wedding or family get together that allows us to swing through!

Finally added a set of overhead cabinets to give us a little more storage for our upcoming trip down to Baja. We still need to add some latches, but this is close enough to done.

Do you know the year range for the Sienna seats you used? Are they second row seats...driver or pass-side? I'm looking to do a setup a lot like yours for my son. Base Fab isn't making Sienna seat adapters anymore either.

Nice build, by the way. We just picked up our van this weekend and I've been contemplating how to make it nice inside without going as far as many do with the build out. Foam-backed carpeted panels were on my mind last night, and low-and-behold I come across your build today.
